A relatively new book out may shed a little light on the Red River Campaign.  Ancestor of mine, Pikney Cone, served in the CMB throughout the Vicksburg and Red River Campaigns.  Captured during the RRC and sent to Camp Ford in Tyler, Tx where he spent the remainder of the war.  Even though I grew up and lived near there for many years, it was wasn't in my realm of interest at the time but have a contact also from Louisiana who could possiblly help.
